- It is STRONGLY recommended, if at all possible, that you come to our Administrative Office on that first business day of the month in the morning to make your reservation. It is not uncommon for there to be multiple people who arrived a little early to be waiting at our door when we open at 8:30am. We also suggest that you have an alternate date in mind, if you have flexibility, in the event the date you want is already booked. 🗺 Our office is located at Lambert Park, 273 WOODBURY AVENUE IN MARTINSBURG (this IS NOT at the venue location).
- We do assist those in-person customers FIRST who are in line when our office opens. If you are unable to be at our office in person, we suggest that you have someone local come to the Administrative Office on your behalf to make the reservation and deposit.
- If that is not possible, we will answer calls beginning at 8:30am at ☎304-264-4842. Your name and number will be taken and your call will be returned in the order it is received once the waiting customers have been helped. If your desired date is available, you will be able to make your non-refundable 50% deposit over the phone. Your confirmation paperwork will be emailed and must be returned to our staff via email by 5:00pm the day the reservation is made.
